Experience with Growing Aesculus x carnea (Red Horse Chestnut)

Anyone have experience growing Aesculus x carnea (Red Horse Chestnut)?

I love the shape, texture and flowers but don't want to plant a tree that will be plagued by problems.

I've found that this hybrid is superior to its parents, but is commonly inflicted with blotch.

I just don't want to make the mistake of planting short lived trees. I consider anything less than 30 years worthless, unless the goal is temporary.
